1.) Actually, if you put the infantry in ambush together with its attachment (in this case the transport platoon) you have to deploy them mounted!
Same goes for guns.
2.) If you opt to not put them together in the ambush then you cannot deploy them anymore as they cannot get within 6" of the infantry command team. And even if you could deploy them they would be sent to the rear at the end of any movement phase when the transport commander cannot get within 6" of the infantry command team.
Well this is why I'm asking this here, because it is clear that there is a lack of explanation here in the rule. Being able to deploy the transport on the table, with the unit in ambush, is impossible as the unit leader isn't visible on the table to be in 6" of the transport leader. This is why I was thinking that maybe there should be a rule amendment saying that if the transport is on the table and the unit in ambush, then you have to pop the ambush with unit's command in 6" of the transport leader. Otherwise, the rule makes no sense, as you stated, you can't deploy them, but the rule at page 95 clearly states that you can. Wonder what BF thinks of this... why make a rule that can't be used...?! And I think that LFTF addresses the problem of staying in command when both platoons of the unit are on the table, and not when one is in ambush and the other is deployed.
